in pennsylvania's controversial voter i.d. law. we have been waiting for this. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams joins me live. >> the judge said the new voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the strict new i.d. law cannot go in effect for the general election. there is a chance the state could appeal this to the state's supreme court, but based on what the supreme court said last time they looked at this, it's doubtful they would succeed there. what the judge says here is yes, it's true. the state has said we can fix some of the problems that have come up before, but he says, i question whether there is enough time now to fix these problems. i think there are going to be more problems down the road putting this into effect like we've already seen, he says. he believes that the gap between the photo i.d.'s issued and the estimated need cannot be closed before the election. in other words, he says all the people who would have to get new photo i.d.s, he doubts there is enough time for them to get them. he says i'm not convinced in my predictive judgment there won't be any voter disenfranchisem

a more conservative court but will do it gradually. >> he is not trying to move the law radically quickly. justice scalia or thomas want to get to the end answer as quickly as possible and conform the law into what they understand it to be. >> but some don't believe much will change anytime soon. >> this is not a crusading conservative court. until we have a shift it's impossible to call it a court that liens more to the left or the right. >> for opinions that could be close, attention will be paid to anthony kennedy who is frequently the swing vote in some of the toughest cases. >> joe johns there for us in washington. >>> a tennessee house fire leaves two grand parents dead and there are no signs of two kids staying at the home. it has been a week and investigators are getting desperate. small business earns 2% cash back on every purchase, every day! helium delivery. put it on my spark card!

and information. i would suggest to him or pose the question he sasz he's followed the law to the letter of the law in terms of paying his taxes, but so do the 47%. so why is it that it's okay for him but it's not okay for them. and i would also love to do a little comparison with how much money he's actually saved versus that 47% gets in that earned income tax credit and let's just compare who's really getting the sweeter deal there. >> i think if there's just one question, i guess i would like to hear if you gave john mccain a dozen or more tax returns in order to be vetted for him, why wouldn't you give us those tax returns to vet you for the possible presidency. that's what i think the audience could follow. >> absolutely. i think that's what a lot of people are thinking. what is the big deal? why not just show us? and i also think it's a bit of malpractice the way his team has miscalculated how this story would play out. >> and paul ryan had to give ten years of his returns to romney. >> right. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> thanks. >> coming up. the republican voter supp
if you don't have a driver's license or another i.d. like that but they didn't get away with that new law. a judge ruled this week the new rule about i.d. will not be in effect for this election. but yesterday and this was the scoop, we called the state of pennsylvania to ask some questions about voting there in that state this year. this is what we got. listen to this. it's amazing. remember, legally you can vote even if you don't have an i.d. in pennsylvania in this election. you can. listen. >> thank you for calling the pennsylvania department of state bureau of commissions, elections, and legislation. press one for english. press one for information on pennsylvania's new voter i.d. law. press two for -- >> hello. all pennsylvania voters will be required to show a photo i.d. before voting at a polling place beginning with the november 2012 general election. all photo i.d.s must be current and contain an expiration date unless otherwise noted. >> so that was our scoop last night. our bad scoop. because what you just heard there from the state of pennsylvania is not the law. but it's wha

he is enforcing the laws and as you know the big issue for virginians are going to be the defense cuts and i think that is what governor romney is going to sell and i think that is ultimately what is going to help him win the commonwealth of virginia. >> geraldo: what about the latino vote, though, congressman? i underand it that defense is a huge, huge issue in the commonwealth where there is so many defense facilities. but there are substantial number of latinos there, particularly around the disdistrict of columbia. if he talks tough, first of alllet me ask you this. i withdraw that statement. the governor said he will not repeal president obama's temporary dream act measure where he gave a pass, a two year visa to those students you know story who were brought here as children. do you regret that governor romney has done that? >> no, i don't regret that he has. i think your word tough is a little different word. i think if he comes out and talks about the fact as we listen to a lot of voters concerned about immigration issues. one of their concerns are the huge backlog that th

, well, no one else can either. instead of providing more money and man power to enforce the law, many politicians across the country are upping the speed limit big time. according to the governor's highway safety association seven states, kansas, kentucky, maine, ohio, pennsylvania, texas and virginia have increased speed limits to as high as 85 miles per hour on certain roads. maybe you're saying it is about time. consider this. there is no doubt excessive speed kills. if you have a need for speed, highway 130 near austin, texas, is where you have to be. later this fall posted legal speed limit 85. >> it is the highest posted speed limit on the whole western hemisphere, right? it is really pretty neat. >> an anomoly? not by a long shot. according to the insurance institute for highway safety, 35 states have raised speed limits to 70 miles per hour or higher, and no one is more aware of that than long distance truckers like anthony frederick, and frankly, it scares him. >> doing 85 miles an hour, all they're doing is asking for more accidents and more deaths, that's about it. they say

decisions about what treatments are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. but let's go back to what governor romney indicated. under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. what your plan does is to duplicate what's already the law. which says if you are on health insurance for three months, then you can end up getting continuous coverage. and an insurance company can't deny you if it's been under 90 days. but that's already the law. and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions. there's a reason why governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it wasn't a government takeover of health care. it was the largest expansion of private insurance. but what it does say is, insurers, you've got to take everybody. now, that also means that you've got more customers. but when governor romney says that he'll replace it with something but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced, and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts is beca

, president obama's done a much better job in enforcing the trade laws than we've ever seen before. he's pushed china. he just won three cases. he won a case on pipe to put thousands of people back to work. he won a case of tires that put people back to work. and he just filed one on auto parts. look, mitt romney's talk is cheap. he'll go back to this -- he's working on currency. we're all working on currency. mitt romney will go back to the same paradigm that we had before. signing agreements that are good for wall street but not good for main street. >> even though this tax increase that we're about to see is going to increase taxes for anybody making more than $250,000. >> which tax increases you talking about? >> the fiscal cliff issue as we see the tax cuts expire at year end. >> well, the president said he wants to continue those tax breaks for people earning less than $250,000. it's the republicans that say no, we won't give anybody anything unless the millionaires and billionaires get their tax cut too. they don't need -- they need to pay their fair share. and we -- >> thanks,
